Carmelo Espeleta: MotoGP Season Begins in July and Ends in November

Dorna Sports CEO Carmelo Espeleta spoke about MotoGP’s plans for the 2020 season.

At the moment, the nearest stage in the calendar, the transfer or cancellation of which has not yet been reported, is the Grand Prix of the Czech Republic. However, Espeleta hinted that the schedule will be greatly redrawn.

“We are working on several scenarios, and according to the most optimistic one, we will start the season at the end of July,” said the Spaniard on BT Sport. – It all depends on the situation, but two things will be key: some countries must allow us to leave, and others – entry. In general terms, the championship is planned to be concentrated in Europe and held from July-August to November. Perhaps by the end of the year we will be able to carry out the visiting stages, but the main thing is to finish the season on time.

This is the best possible scenario, and every day I think about how to bring it to life. Perhaps we will hold two Grand Prix in a row on the same track, and then move to the next. In Europe, this will be made easier, since road transport can be used.

Unfortunately, with a high degree of probability the races will be held without spectators, unless a vaccine appears. It will be difficult to provide security with so many people.

There is also an alternative plan with a start in September, but holding such a compact championship at the end of the year will already be very problematic. ”
